Reviewed 22 July 2013

We booked at last minute stay at The Rowborough. We were warmly welcomed by Michelle and Brian and shown our three spotlessly clean bedrooms. Our breakfast was delicious and we felt extremely relaxed before setting off for our day on the beach. The hotel is within walking distance (or a short drive) from Shanklin and Hope beach.
Well done Michelle, Caroline and Brian for ensuring our weekend short break was so enjoyable!

As soon as we arrived at the Rowborough we gave a very friendly welcome and showed to our lovely family room. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast cooked by Michelle was lovely and well cooked and Caroline made us feel very welcome and helped us plan our days on the island with her local knowledge. The weekend went so quickly and we are looking forward to another trip to visit the Rowborough.

We have just returned from a week in this lovely hotel and feel the proprietors deserve a positive review. The accommodation was spotless and he food tasty and well cooked by Michelle. The "Front of House" serving of meals and customer service by Caroline and Brian was faultless.
We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We will return, soon we hope.

Room Tip: The ground floor room is well adapted for the physically less able traveller.
